Last call to get half the free Xbox 360 games this month

Ah, another public service announcement -- another opportunity for us to remind you to remember your coat and hat when going outside to play, lest you catch a cold. You'd lose your head if it weren't bolted to your neck....

First episode of Telltale's Game of Thrones free on Android photo
First episode of Telltale's Game of Thrones free on Android
by Jordan Devore

$4.99 is the usual asking price for episodes of Telltale's Game of Thrones series, but not today, valued Android user. The debut episode, Iron From Ice, is free if you download through Amazon.

In his review, Darren said the game "...feels like a punch to the gut, and it sets the stage for an intensely emotionally draining experience." (That's a compliment, I'm pretty sure.)

In an addendum, he added that "If you know for sure that you will never go back and read the books or watch the HBO series, then this is an okay place to start. If you think there is a chance you will want to see the beginning, then I'd pass on this for now."

I hope Veryman.Expert becomes America's next great pastime photo
I hope Veryman.Expert becomes America's next great pastime
by Jordan Devore

Think about the weirdest thing you saw today. Veryman.Expert is probably weirder.

It's a browser-based god game, so to speak, about creating men. There are no losers, ever.

You can adjust your man's movements -- a touch of Leanin here, a lil Big Big there -- and deck him out in muscle patterns like Human Pouch and Torque. You can put your man in space, or dress him as a Hot Beef Boy. You can even feed him nachos laced with stereoscopic 3D-inducing drugs.

All that, and when you're finished, you can export your man as a .gif for the betterment of society.

Veryman.Expert is my new obsession.

Friendly reminder: Last day to get the free Forza Horizon Fast & Furious game photo
Friendly reminder: Last day to get the free Forza Horizon Fast & Furious game
by Brett Makedonski

Two weeks has already come and gone, meaning that today, April 10, is the last day you can pick up the free Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious title for both Xbox One and Xbox 360. Beginning tomorrow, it jumps to $10 -- a price so Ludacris that only someone carrying around twin Glock .40s (Roll out!) could afford it.

While the standalone chunk of Forza Horizon didn't set our world on fire, it was certainly enjoyable. No question that it's worth a download, especially on Xbox One. No harm in snatching up a freebie.

Geometry Wars 3 is now a whole lot bigger photo
Geometry Wars 3 is now a whole lot bigger
by Jordan Devore

Lucid Games' twin-stick shooter Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is no more. With today's massive free update, which "nearly doubles" the game's content, it is now known as Dimensions Evolved.

To summarize, there's 40 new Adventure Mode levels, 20 Hardcore Mode levels that strip away drones and super abilities, some bonus levels, and a more fleshed out Classic Mode, among other things. I played one particularly cool level type, pictured above, in which your ship has no firepower but can drag along this trail of light that will destroy enemies who brush up against it.

New players will see Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved listed on digital marketplaces like Steam going forward -- the new levels and tweaks are now rolled into the base game -- while existing players can, again, play this stuff by updating their existing copy of Geometry Wars 3.

Good on you, Lucid and Sierra.

That free Fast & Furious expansion for Forza Horizon 2 is out today photo
That free Fast & Furious expansion for Forza Horizon 2 is out today
by Jordan Devore

More free stuff to download on Xbox One and Xbox 360 assuming you get around to nabbing Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious before April 10, at which point the standalone expansion becomes $10. As we said previously, Ludacris is in this so, yeah. Cool.

I'm a couple films behind in the Fast & Furious series, but Furious 7 looks like more dumb fun and the ten cars you'll acquire in this game are based on the new movie. One of the vehicles is an "armored 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited." Hah. Consider that the litmus test.

There's said to be around six to eight hours of gameplay. Good chunk of game, then. Grab it here.

How does twice the number of Games with Gold in April sound? photo
How does twice the number of Games with Gold in April sound?
by Brett Makedonski

We're at that point in the month where it's time to start thinking about which adorable kitten is waiting to replace that other adorable kitten when you flip your calendar, and less importantly, what Xbox's Games with Gold titles will be. You can probably sneak a peek at the kitty cat whenever you want, but Microsoft's already allowed us to steal a glimpse at our free games.

April is fairly special in that there are twice the number of titles offered to download for free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Whether or not you're interested in all six of them is another story.

The two Xbox One games in April will have you chalking your cue and spouting off rhymes in awkward rhythm, too. Pool Nation FX and Child of Light are both available throughout the entirety of the month.

Those on Xbox 360 will find themselves sticking blades in necks, and chainsaws on guns. But, that's only half the fun. Gears of War: Judgment and Terraria will be available from April 1 to 15 (no foolin'!). After that, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel take over until it's time to flip to yet another kitten.

Free Legend of Dungeon expansion adds cats photo
Free Legend of Dungeon expansion adds cats
by Jordan Devore

More cats? More cats. And, hello, the ability to tame wild animals to fight on your behalf? I'm into it.

The dungeon brawler with the funny hats and great lighting, Legend of Dungeon, is getting the free Legend Heroes expansion today on Steam. It adds VR support for the Oculus Rift DK2, full controller support for menus, better dungeon tiles, and more bosses, items, monsters, and music.

Notably, though, eight-plus heroes have become lost in the depths and you'll want to save them not because it's the right thing to do, but because doing so unlocks new playable classes.

by Jordan Devore

Amazon is giving away 34 Android apps today, and some of them aren't crap. Take a look!

Consider nabbing Kingdom Rush Origins if you're into tower defense, and Five Nights at Freddy's 2 if you're curious about the animatronic jump-scare craze. Familiar titles like Cut the Rope and World of Goo are in here too, as is the largely unknown but lovable-as-heck Deep Under the Sky.

Microsoft is cool with pirates upgrading to Windows 10 for free photo
Microsoft is cool with pirates upgrading to Windows 10 for free
by Jordan Devore

Microsoft is launching Windows 10 this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages, which is good to know but not all that inherently interesting. This, on the other hand, sure is: during the operating system's first year, it'll be a free (permanent) upgrade for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 users including those who are running pirated versions of Windows.

"We believe customers over time will realize the value of properly licensing Windows and we will make it easy for them to move to legitimate copies," a Microsoft rep told Eurogamer.

Guess that means we can all play Gigantic together. Dibs on the owl guy.

Geometry Wars 3 is evolving with 40 new stages and Hardcore Mode photo
Geometry Wars 3 is evolving with 40 new stages and Hardcore Mode
by Jordan Devore

This is unexpected. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is rolling out a free update across all platforms (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC) on March 31, 2015 that's large enough to warrant a name change. Going forward, the game will be known as Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved.

Adventure Mode, the one with boss battles, is adding 40 stages, and the existing score-based gating system for unlocking levels is being tweaked so that it's easier to get through. You'll also be able to choose the new Sweeper drone and Detonator super ability (i.e., more stuff to level up).

Hardcore Mode, according to Lucid Games and Sierra, "lets players tackle 20 dedicated levels without using a drone or super, including individual leaderboards for no-loadout purists to compete for high scores." Terrific excuse to get back into Geometry Wars 3. (Also, what's the catch?)

Grab a free copy of BioShock Infinite on Xbox Live photo
Grab a free copy of BioShock Infinite on Xbox Live

March is already half over (have you filed your taxes yet?), which means more free Xbox games.

With an active Xbox Live Gold membership, you can now download BioShock Infinite for free on Xbox 360. Love it or hate it, there's no denying the game's heavenly opener. Every once in a while I'll get the urge to see the ascension to Columbia again on YouTube. "Halleluiah."

Rayman Legends is the one and only free Xbox One title this month, but it's so good I don't even mind. That and the recently-released Ori and the Blind Forest make for a blissful combination.
